Abstract: This paper examined the cocoa supply chain in Ghana using Transroyal (GH) Ltd as well as producing a supply chain model that is peculiar to transroyal Ghana limited. The paper conducted with strong data reliability and found to address some pertinent factors affecting the logistical drivers of transroyal Ghana Limited. Some of the logistical driver were found to be very significant and their correlations were found to be significant. The study revealed strong levels of interdependence between actors within the supply chain. It also revealed that, Transroyal (GH) Ltd has not been able to fully reap the benefit of procurement, transportation and internal systems integration. It also revealed that ICT is not fully embraced within the operations of the company but the most successful driver in the business was cash flow. The conclusion is that competition has shifted from individual efforts of companies to cooperation relationship with complex interdependence, so if Trans royal (GH) Ltd wants to grow in this business, then, pragmatic and cutting edge solutions and systems should be put in place to overcome competitive rivalry among LBCs in Ghana. The company should examine its operations, eliminate waste, inject efficiency and create wealth for its shareholders
